Now in place, the Accelerators are using low latency, byte-level caching techniques that work on all applications to consistently deliver average Virtual bandwidth increases 1400% across the organization. With this level of optimization, accelerating applications to over 7000%, FinComún has no need to upgrade or increase its Internet payment for the next five years.

Following a competitive tender, FinComún chose [email protected] and Expand Networks for the combination of superior technology, high level technical support and cost-efficiency. Expand Networks was chosen over competitive products from Riverbed, Blue Coat, Cisco and Juniper. Adolfo Quiroz, IT Manager explains, “The Expand solution provided the best technical performance for accelerating our critical applications and [email protected] provided a highly-professional team of engineers. On top of this, the solution offered a return on investment of just 8.5 months, meaning the technology would practically pay for itself.”

FinComún is widely recognized as Mexico’s premier micro-finance institution and a pioneer in the use of technology, the testing of new ideas and innovative partnerships. As a company with philanthropic origins, maximizing efficiency via cutting edge technology has been a cornerstone of Fincomún’s continued success. Adolfo Quiroz explains;

“It’s vital that branch productivity is optimal because that's where our customers open new accounts and generate payments and loans. All customer procedures that are in the branches are directly related to the main datacenter at headquarters, and we found 128 kbps connections for our branch offices was simply not sufficient. Offering community-based financial services through personalized treatment, modern technology and low transaction costs, is a big part of our mission statement. Committed to retaining low operating costs alongside the highest service levels in this way, Expand provided us with a solution that was both performance oriented and cost-effective.”

Adam Davison, Corporate VP of Sales and Marketing at Expand Networks, concludes, “The cost savings on extending network investment are significant. This is a great demonstration of how Expand's virtual proximity experience can make a real difference to an organization’s bottom line. Through delivering virtual bandwidth, the productivity levels provided to FinComún are translating directly into more contracts, reduced credit period, more flexibility in payments and services and ultimately, satisfied customers, all contributing toward its mission to offer community financial services that will help to resolve the structural causes of poverty in the region.”
